I have tried to catch George MacDonald Fraser out in an historical error, but have yet to succeed. As always, the story is historically accurate (except where noted by the author). Flashie, poltroon and scalawag, lies and cheats his way through the American South 20 years or so prior to the Civil War. Along the way, he inadvertently rescues a slave woman from bondage, but it wasn't really his fault--he'd have left her there if he could have. While Flashman himself couldn't care less about the fate of the slaves, it is a chilling portrait of slavers, slave owners and the entire slave/plantation system. Like "Huckleberry Finn," the story indicts without preaching.
And the narration couldn't be more perfect. David Case IS Flashman.

Where does Flashman for Freedom rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
A splendid story and David Case's reading captures the sardonic nature of Harry Flashman's character perfectly.
